FASTPORT is dedicated to connecting employers with the most up-to-date source of Veterans, transitioning service members, members of the Guard and Reserve, and Military Spouses who are actively looking for new careers. To accomplish that, FASTPORT created a coalition of partners representing the worldwide military community.
Hiring OUr Heroes
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation’s Hiring Our Heroes initiative launched in March 2011 as a nationwide effort to connect veterans, transitioning service members, and military spouses with meaningful employment opportunities. To date, more than 31,000 veterans and military spouses have obtained employment opportunities through Hiring Our Heroes events. More than 2,000 companies of all sizes have committed to hire 710,000 veterans and military spouses as part of the Hiring 500,000 Heroes campaign. Of those commitments, there have been more than 505,000 confirmed hires. Button pointing to HOH brand products.
Resume Engine helps service members translate their military training into a civilian resume, showing the experience gained in the military makes them great employees. Once the resume is complete, the job seekers can make it viewable by thousands of employers using the Resume Engine in the search for qualified job candidates. Currently, there are over 200,000 profiles on the Resume Engine, with the number increasing daily.
CareerSpark is the companion site to Resume Engine that mirrors its translation capacity for Military Spouses. Many in this cohort struggle to create a well-crafted resume due to a variety of causes, including needing to frequently move residences. Using Career Spark, thousands of Military Spouses have maximized their work and volunteer experience and made their resume searchable to thousands of military friendly employers in our database.
